Taps

The Bicentennial Committee commissioned the Medals of Honor through donations and fund-raisers.

Honoring military veterans from Darrtown and vicinity during the Bicentennial was a fitting outcome of the Steering Committee's plans to improve the village square.

Landscaping led to paved walkways and benches in the park.

The pavers and benches led to the plaza and the monument for military veterans.

The veterans' monument led to the flag pole project.

All those factors evolved into the idea of holding a ceremony for veterans.

The idea of a ceremony led to the creation of a commemorative medal of honor.

The Program

THe Medal of Honor

Fred Lindley designed the medallion. Ron Wiley arranged for the production of the medallions.

The medallions were presented to all veterans from Darrtown and vicinity that the committee was able to identify and invite to the ceremony.
